I joined very recently, but it seems that this forum has lost any steam that it once may have had. I see less than 1 post per day, sometimes none. What is missing here? I will soon stop checking this forum as I see little interest from anyone. Why so, moderators?

There were some comparative religion topics at our 2 main sister sites:
https://dhammawheel.com/
https://dharmawheel.net/

And then some of the topics were getting too heated and there were rules made that there should be no more comparative religion topics. Then this forum was created to provide an outlet for that discussion. But unfortunately, it turns out people don't want to do the heavy lifting so-to-speak, in getting a new forum off the ground, and this forum has remained very inactive. People tend to gravitate toward those forums that are already up and running, successful, and active.

We also created an engaged buddhism forum, with the same idea, to allow more politics and engaged buddhism discussion, but like this one, it is also fairly inactive.
https://dharmawheel.org/

I still see some comparative religion discussions popping up every once in a while, at the 2 most active forums and when I invite them to come over here -- they still don't come over.

DNS,

I find both Dhammawheel & Dharmawheel are geared for those who are actively practicing either Theravada or Tibetan Buddhism. Both sites are mainly tedious sutta/sutra discussions and citations and are pervaded by religious dogma. Not for me. Whatever this site was purporting to be, it seems to have been drained of any life. A pity.
